Yesterday I mentioned being halfway to figuring out what God wants for me in the future.
I feel like maybe it's time to put it out there and see what all of the wise people in my life are thinking about this...give me some feedback, some guidance, poke some holes in the plan. (I'm aware that this is a big dream...believe me, I'm more logical than I seem in my posts.)
So...here it is:
I want to live in America until August each year...be around for PDYM, SLC, Summer Camps, the Orange County Fair...most family birthdays and most major events in the year.
And then, in late-August, head to Kenya for a few months. As it sits now, I'm really feeling like I could make a difference spending August to late-November here, working Math, English, Science with the Oasis kids...helping to prepare them for their end-of-the-year exams. (Potentially, I could teach Math in a school during the day as well?) I could stay for a bit after exams to celebrate school letting out and help Geoffrey shop for Christmas gifts.
Then I would come home for December in America (peppermint hot chocolates, Santa in the mall, Christmas songs in Target...dishwashers, washing machines, pedicures...)
So...what do you think?
